Katrin Ray says:
"I'm visiting Maria's photo-gallery on regular basis for almost 2 years now and think it's time to write a testimonial for this talented, intelligent and beautiful lady. Well, the first thing I love about her photography is how she handles the light and keeps these amazing warm tones that makes me really to connect with an image and feel the energy of it. Another side of Ria's photography that I admire is the conceptual aspect that she does perfectly, delivering ideas with ease and the creative approach! My fave series of hers is "Yoga Inspired" - a beautiful artistic presentation showing her skills on different levels. Being a yoga lover for many years myself, this series inspired me to look at my asanas from a photography perspective too! I'm looking forward to each Maria's upload and really enjoy our Flickr friendship here. She is a warm, clever person and it's a pleasure to read her comments and notes she leaves in my photo-gallery.
Thank you for being you, for your creativity and friendship, dear Ria!

"Maria's images and storytelling are worthy of a book, maybe a children's book that I'm sure would become a bestseller worldwide. Don't forget to sign it for me, Ria :)"

"Ria is a very warm member of the Flickr community. Her support over whelms me. I see as great friend and is always inspired by her wonderful work. I hope to match her creativity and her eye for photography one day.
Much love Uzzi :)"

"There are times I wanted to write about my friend Maria. Yes, although we never met in person and we live in very distant places, I consider her a great friend.
Her constant presence in my gallery almost since I joined Flickr, with intelligent, motivating and engaging comments, have caused this friendship to grow in a short time.
Ria is an excellent wife and mother of 02 beautiful children (check on her albums!)
About her photos? Well, she has an incredible sensitivity and unique ability to convey the best feeling in each picture she presents to us.
Moreover, she can create great and inspiring pictures with incredible homemade productions.
So, what are you waiting to explore her gallery?!
Ria, is an honor to have you in my list of friends ,-))"
